Psalm 142 (to God I Made My Sorrows Known)

God is the hope of the helpless.


To God I made my sorrows known,
From God I sought relief;
In long complaints before his throne
I pour'd out all my grief.

My soul was overwhelm'd with woes,
My heart began to break;
My God, who all my burdens knows,
He knows the way I take.

On every side I cast mine eye,
And found my helpers gone,
While friends and strangers pass'd me by
Neglected or unknown.

Then did I raise a louder cry,
And call'd thy mercy near,
"Thou art my portion when I die,
"Be thou my refuge here."

Lord, I am brought exceeding low,
Now let thine ear attend,
And make my foes who vex me know
I've an almighty Friend.

From my sad prison set me free,
Then shall I praise thy Name,
And holy men shall join with me
Thy kindness to proclaim.

Psalm 143 (my Righteous Judge, My Gracious God)
Complaint of heavy afflictions in mind and body.My righteous Judge, my gracious God,Hear when I spread my hands abroadAnd cry for succour from thy throne,O make thy truth and mercy known.Let judgment not against me pass;Behold thy servant pleads thy grace:Should justice call us to thy bar,No man alive is guiltless there.Look down in pity, Lord, and seeThe mighty woes that burden me;Down to the dust my life is brought,Like one long bury'd and forgot.I dwell in darkness and unseen,My heart is desolate within;My thoughts in musing silence traceThe ancient wonders of thy grace.Thence I derive a glimpse of hopeTo bear

Psalm 141 (my God, Accept My Early Vows)
Psalm 141. 2-5Watchfulness, and brotherly reproof.A morning or evening psalm.My God, accept my early vows,Like morning incense in thine house,And let my nightly worship riseSweet as the evening sacrifice.Watch o'er my lips, and guard them, Lord,From every rash and heedless word;Nor let my feet incline to treadThe guilty path where sinners lead.O may the righteous, when I stray,Smite, and reprove my wandering way!Their gentle words, like ointment shed,Shall never bruise, but cheer my head.When I behold them prest with grief,I'll cry to heaven for their relief;And by my warm petitions provehow much I prize their faithful love.(The end)Isaac Watts's poem: Psalm
